Re: Encoder mount guiding with model active

The number at the bottom of the chart is in seconds, so for approx. 900 second run the Dec had one correction, the RA had 4. Correction pulse was sent only when the error exceeded 0.3 arc seconds. So, for many many guide cycles no corrections were sent, and then only occasionally.

I'm not familiar with Maxim, so cant decipher the charts... but about how often do you find you are sending a guide pulse?  I.e.- With the encoder are you requiring a guidecorrection every few captures, or just rarely?  1600mm FL is pretty awesome to be able to run unguided.
